Some exciting news are coming this way for young people from India and the United Kingdom.


Two Trade Agreements were passed by the Senate this week, the India-Australia and United Kingdom-Australia Trade agreements.


The India-Australia Trade Agreement will result in 1000 Indian nationals getting Working Holiday Visas. For UK nationals, the United Kingdom-Australia Trade Agreement means that the eligible age for UK nationals for WHV’s would be 35 years and better still for the, the regional work component would be removed.


What this will also mean is that there could be exemptions to labour market testing for Indian and UK nationals, which will make it easier for Australian employers to hire Indian and UK nationals.


However, it’s still a bit too early to celebrate, as India and the United Kingdom would need to ratify the agreements for them to become operational. 


Watch this space for notification of the commencement of the agreements!
